Directions to Petone Settlers Museum
Petone Settlers Museum is located in the Eastern Bays area of Wellington, overlooking the harbour. The free to enter museum commemorates the first organised European settlers arrivals in New Zealand.
Visitors will gain an insight and understanding of the migration and settlement of the Europeans in the Hutt Valley and Wellington region and the ensuing cultural diversity.
The museum is held in the Wellington Provincial Centennial Memorial building which also houses Tatou Tatou exhibition that celebrates the local area. The memorial building was officially opened on the 22nd January 1940 in front of a crowd of 5000 people. Today, it remains one of the most significant memorial buildings in New Zealand.
The museum is a short walk to Petone's historic Jackson Street and a number of antique shops and cafes.
